Explanation: Hi-Ho!
Hermit The Blog here ...

I was watching a youtube vid on "The Five Basic Forms Of Government Explained"

Found Here!

[Note I havent embedded it as its just the inspiration for this thread and I am only focusing on a very small part of the vid]

.. and I came across a graph used in that vid [linked above] that basically showed Total Gov on the left and No Gov on the right and it occured to me to use that graph to represent what I think would be a FAIR Tax Rate to pay for the level of nannying we would get in return.

[Note I have edited the screen grabbed picture to include the words "Tax Rate" ]

Under this proposed new recipe ... what tax level would my fellow members be willing to pay?

Personal Disclosure: I would also like to point out that I can also see that graph as a responsibility map in regards to who is ultimately legally responsible (to the degree of control) if anything goes wrong!

So with 100% Tax and 100% Gov ... if I stub my toe for any reason... thats their fault!

P.S. I hope this threads issue is a tasty one!

If you stub your toe the government would remove it so you would be sure to never have the problem again.

Serious answer though, I'd be willing to pay a single 15% tax rate. Meaning, no taxing my dollar twice.

I am pay a single 10% tax rate. This will never happen though. We pay hidden taxes all over the place and new ones keep popping up all over. There is town close to me called Red Lodge and they have for the last few years added a Resort tax on everything there like a sales tax. There is no sales tax in Montana.
